"Erica Kious, a single mom of two and owner of eSalon, the place Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi received her hair achieved on Monday, is now being pressured to close down and relocate her enterprise and household on account of outrage and threats she is receiving", Tarkanian wrote on the GoFundMe web page.
The salon where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) flouted CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus restrictions is going out of business, according to the owner.
And, Kious says, she'll be closing this location of eSalon permanently.
"I started to just get a ton of phone calls, text messages, emails, all my Yelp reviews, just all this, saying that they hope I go under and that I fail", she said. "So just a lot of negativity towards my business".
Masks are mandatory and a great weapon to fight this novel coronavirus but she herself visited the salon to get her hair done without a mask.
Many people called out Pelosi's hypocrisy, saying that it was unfair for her to act as an exception to the same rules she has recently been promoting.
'It was a set up, and I take responsibility for falling for a setup, ' she added.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is seen in a video inside a salon without wearing a mask during a press briefing given by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany in Washington on September 3, 2020. "And that when they said "We're able to accommodate people one person at a time" and that we can set up that time, I trusted that". "I've had a camera system in there for five years".
"I'm actually afraid to go back... So that is absolutely false". "They humiliate you. 'Wear your mask".
Her husband Danny has run for public office, gaining the support of Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle who spoke at a 2018 fundraiser in support of the then Republican congressional candidate.
"The speaker always wears a mask and complies with local COVID requirements", spokesman Drew Hammill said in a statement to The Washington Post, adding Pelosi briefly took down her mask while getting her hair washed.
In a statement, hairstylist Jonathan DeNardo defended Pelosi and criticized the salon owner. But this is of course being framed to further vilify liberal San Francisco and Pelosi for coming after Kious with their pitchforks.
